Proof Philly fans blow

I think my hate for all things Philly has been well documented on this blog. Well, this whole "Jimmy Rollins calling Philly fans front runners" thing has me about as giddy as a schoolgirl. Finally, the truth about how terrible that city's fans and teams are is coming to light. If you don't know what Rollins said to become public enemy No. 1 in the home of the Liberty Bell, here's a refresher:

""There are times, I might catch some flak for saying this, but, you know, they're front-runners. When you're doing good, they're on your side. When you're doing bad, they're completely against you. When you're doing good, they're on your side ... St. Louis, it seems like they support their team, they're out there and encouraging. In Philly, can't be no punk. "

Apparently, in reaction to the comments by one of the city's best athletes, the people of Philly may finally be wising up to just how terrible they have become. One Philly sports blog is trying to rally the city to actually, you know, be fans of their team:

C'mon everybody, why so glum? I want you calling the radio stations, writing the newspapers, making huge signs to display with pride for our 2nd place team. Enough of all this negativity, they need our support. I know that's difficult after losing to the Padres 8-3, but the boos aren't helping, so it's time for change.
